I recently upgraded a friend's Dell Mini 12 (Inspiron 1210) from Ubuntu 8.10 to 10.04 netbook edition. After installing, and performing the available updates, I'm unable to detect any wireless networks (it knows it has a wireless card, but won't list any active networks).
There also seems to be an issue with the display drivers: when scrolling, resizing, or drawing any windows there is a noticeable lag as I watch the screen redraw. As if there are no compatible display drivers installed.
All these problems go away the moment I boot up a version of 8.10. But I'd like to keep 10.04 if possible.
Are these common problems? Everything I've read suggest this is laptop should be compatible. Any suggestions? Thanks.
